2554 - Money Laundering and Related Financial Crimes
We will begin with the federal money laundering statute and its companion, structuring, analyzing some major cases. In order to understand the context in which the money laundering cases have been prosecuted, we then look at the rise of white collar crime legislation via related statutes such as the Hobbes Act, the Dyer Act, conspiracy, the Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act (FACTA), and the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FACTA). Included are some U.S. statutes about domestic activities such as bank fraud, conspiracy and mail fraud. For persons knowingly or unknowingly involved in international transactions, the course will examine the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and various asset protection schemes. In the final session we will examine the enforcement protocols of the U.S. Justice Department through some prominent cases: Martha Stewart, Scooter Libby, Dennis Hastert, Paul Manafort, Eliot Spitzer, and others.
